Our room was right at the top of the house and was well equipped and very comfortable. The hosts were friendly and attentive and breakfast was fantastic: great quality and lots of choices.
Can't think of a thing.
Location good, breakfast good
Not told when booking we would get an attic bedroom. Would recommend checking what room you are getting and avoid attic rooms.
Everything...friendly host, delicious food, great location-easy bus access to castle, beautiful home
the staff was very nice and helpful.
the price was exagerated for the quality of the room .
- Good tips from host for transport, sightseeing - Flexibility with breakfast for early "runners" to the airport - Lovely place with nice people
Everything. Helpful friendly owner. Quiet. Comfortable beds. Good position. Handy for buses. Great breakfast.
I really like it. My only comment is that the second day, they did not clean the room, garbage and vacuum was not made and you can notice it. But pretty good, comfortable and very nice host.
The cleaning of the room was not good the second day
The hostess made us feel welcome from the first moment. She gave us useful suggestions on where to go to and how to get there best. The room we had was quiet and clean and we slept like babies. It was roomy and nicely decorated. The location is perfect to get in and out of the city. The bus stop is right in front of the door. Day ticket is GBP 3.50. We had a car for day trips and took the bus into the city.
Breakfast between 8-9 felt a bit tight if you want to sleep in but we managed.
Every thing is good.
The hosts were fantastic, our room better than some of the hotels we stayed in. The bus stop nearly outside the door made trips to and from Edinburgh very easy. Breakfast was probably the best for our entire trip. Plenty of good restaurants a short walk away. Fabulous.
First time visiting Edingburgh and not sure where to stay. After reading the reviews about Alba House I decided to book a long week-end. It has lived up to all of my expectations. A lovely room and hearty breakfast and Kath is the most welcoming hostess I have met 10 out of 10.
Everything about Alba House especially their central location to City with the direct links available.
Lack of parking. Lack of evening dining facilites or lack of local eateries.
A remarkable find in a street full of B&Bs. Masterful service, excellent food, will stay there agin for sure!!!
The house was squeaky clean, warm and very pretty; it also felt like a home away from home. I recommend it without reservations.
Very friendly staff and house was lovely
I had two different rooms first was on top floor very cute and very comfortable bed but no shower and three flights up. Second room was a little bit bigger had a shower but bed wasn't as comfortable.
Good bus routes into the centre, very helpfull
A very welcoming host and she was very knowledgeable about Edinburgh. She even went the extra mile and got us ice to cool our wine! The room was large and comfortable and it was lovely that we were able to open the windows to enjoy the nice weather.
There were only 2 straight chairs to sit on which weren't that comfortable.
Everything...how comfortable the owner made you fell
Nothing everything graet
The hostess was very helpful and friendly. The bus stop was very close and convenient. The house and garden were very charming.
The room was a bit small and the shower was very annoying. It was very weak with hardly any hot water. They should seriously consider changing it to a better quality.
Our host, Cath, was extremely helpful, informative and welcoming. Our room was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was lovely and set us up for the day ahead. The location was convenient for local restaurants and bars and there was an excellent bus service to the city centre.
Very clean property with an extrely attentive land lady. Good breakfast and very comfortable bed.
Noise of traffic was not very pleasing .
Was made to feel very welcome. Liked the location. Thought the decor was very pretty.
nice people, great breakfasts
quite soft matracce in the bed
It was great. I liked everything.
I did not have time to enjoy the lovely garden.
